Oracle Hysterical: “Hecuba”

“Hecuba” is a lush and experimental rock-leaning album based on Euripides’ tragedy of the same name. Written around 424 BCE in Athens, Hecuba is a savage story of revenge in which the disgraced queen of Troy, Hecuba, with her city razed and her children murdered, descends from nobility to primal violence. A week before the national release on May 13, Oracle Hysterical will debut the album at Taplin Auditorium in Princeton, with a post-performance discussion featuring Brooke Holmes and Josh Billings.

 

Part band, part book club, Oracle Hysterical combines eclectic musical influences with literary breadth. All members of the group perform and compose, with each project developed collectively.

5:00 pm
Taplin Auditorium - Fine Hall
Free and open to the public. Co-sponsored by the Department of Classics, the Department of Music, and Postclassicisms.

Joe's Odyssey

Drawing on his degree in the classics and years of writing and performing, Joe has created an award-winning 30 minute long composition which deconstructs the story of The Odyssey in song, invoking the spirit of the ancient Greek bards who originally brought forth the timeless stories of Odysseus and the heroes of the Trojan War, while making the poem and the circumstances of its creation accessible to modern audiences.
